[ cheers and applause ] >> seth: good evening. i'm seth meyers, this is "late night." how is everybody doing tonight? [ cheers and applause ] fantastic to hear. in that case, let's get to news. the cleveland cavaliers beat the golden state warriors last night and became the first nba team to ever come back from a 3-1 deficit to win the championship. [ cheers ] all right, great. congratulations. said bernie sanders, so you're
saying there's a chance! [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] never count them out. lebernie james. donald trump this morning fired his controversial campaign manager corey lewandowski. i think his name was half the problem. corey is such a fireable name. [ laughter ] dude, what happened to corey? oh, corey got fired. no way. [ laughter ] way. [ laughter ] donald trump thanked crowds in phoenix for their support this weekend saying, "i feel like a supermodel except like times ten. by the way, supermodel times ten is also his spray tan setting." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] despite hillary clinton clinching the democratic nomination, bernie sanders is still getting protection from a
full secret service detail costing taxpayers $38,000 per day. replied sanders, relax. i have a groupon. [ laughter ] chelsea clinton gave birth to a son this weekend. unfortunately, due to his young age, he's a sanders supporter. [ laughter ] kids -- the kids love -- [ cheers and applause ] kids love some bernie sanders. representatives of bush era secretary of state condoleezza rice said this weekend that she is not interested in being donald trump's running mate. said trump, "that's too bad. i love condoleezza rice and all mexican food, really. i love hispanics." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] "that's some good condoleezza rice." prince william put out a statement this weekend urging men to be more open with their feelings. all right. here it goes. i'd like to sleep with your
wife. [ laughter ] felt great. felt so good. [ cheers and applause ] to unburden myself. a company has created a line of nonalcoholic wine for cats containing catnip, water, and organic beet juice for owners who want to drink with their pets. [ laughter ] said the cats, yeah, i actually have a thing tonight. [ laughter ] and finally chipotle ceo steve els is being accused of insider trading and ditching his stock before the companies e. coli outbreak scandal came out and apparently he barely made it to the bathroom before he ditched his stock. [ laughter ] we have a great show for you tonight. [ cheers and applause ] from the new film "swiss army knife" -- "swiss arm man" excuse me, and he's starring in the upcoming off broadway play "privacy." daniel radcliffe is with us tonight. out friend daniel is back on the show.
[ cheers and applause ] from true tv's "billy on the street" and the hulu series "difficult people," our friend billy eichner is back. [ cheers and applause ] and we'll have music from an excellent uk rock band, band of skulls making another appearance here on "late night." [ cheers and applause ] one of our guests tonight, billy eichner, like myself, a fellow northwestern university graduate. we're talking backstage. i want to say thank you to the northwestern class of 2016. i got to give a commencement speech on friday morning. and it was an honor for me to go back to my old school. it was also a surprise, i think, to almost everyone i graduated with who would not have predicted in 1996 that i would be giving a commencement speech unless a lot of [ bleep ] went wrong. so -- [ laughter ] thank you for that. also, it was very exciting. i got to spend my first father's day as a father. i have a three month -- thank you. [ cheers and applause ] and -- i want to thank my wife especially because i spent the
whole day basically saying, "hey, not me." today's father's day. it's my day off. and my wife -- [ light laughter ] my wife was basically took the tack of you're being a jackass because i do 100% of the work every other day. and the fact that you're using father's day as the excuse to like, actually, i'm going to let you get this one today. so thank you for putting up with me. and i forgive my 3-month-old son for not getting me a gift. i thought that was -- [ laughter ] fairly rude, but i forgive him. [ laughter ] moving on, the last few weeks have been a tough stretch for donald trump's campaign. and now elected republican officials are trying everything they can to avoid talking about him altogether. for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: so it's been a full year since trump started running for president. and while trump's entire candidacy has been a challenge to elected republican officials, the last few weeks have been
especially trying with a new poll finding that 70% of americans have an unfavorable view on trump. including a 56% majority who feel this way strongly. now, it should be noted that, in the same poll, 55% have an unfavorable view of hillary clinton. so for a lot of americans, this election is the choice between two terrible options. [ light laughter ] it's like going to the break room and seeing that the only snacks left are half a plain doughnut and a racist. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] so now, many d.c. republicans, after weeks of fielding tough questions on everything from trump's attack on a hispanic judge to his proposed muslim immigration ban, are trying all different kinds of tactics to avoid talking about trump. last week both mitch mcconnell and paul ryan said they would not be taking questions about trump on a daily basis and senator john cornyn of texas declared he's done talking about trump until after the election nearly five months away. wish me luck, he said. yeah, good luck, buddy. [ light laughter ] when i took this job, i thought
i'd be making jokes about republican nominee jeb bush. you did this to me! [ laughter ] i blame you! meanwhile, other
republicans have basically resorted to running and hiding in the elevators. for example, when asked about trump's incendiary speech on muslim immigration, pennsylvania senator pat toomey while jostling to get on to an elevator told reporters inquiring about trump's monday speech that he didn't follow it closely. and north carolina senator richard burr responded that he hadn't seen trump's speech. i'll go read, burr said as he ducked into an elevator at the capitol. it's only a matter of time until capitol hill elevators are just jammed with congressional republicans hiding out until after the election. [ laughter ] what floor? oh, no floor. i'm just going up and down until november 9th. [ laughter ] i guess it's only appropriate that a campaign that began on an escalator ends huddled in an elevator. [ laughter ] even those republicans who were once enthusiastic trump backers are toning down their support. like wisconsin senator ron johnson who once talked enthusiastically about
campaigning with trump. on sunday however, johnson was much more subdued in his attitude trying to claim he was supporting the gop nominee without actually endorsing trump personally. >> you said just before an event last month, i'm going to certainly endorse the republican nominee and obviously it looks like that will be mr. trump. have you endorsed him? >> it's been
my intention to support the republican nominee and again nobody can predict the outcome of this thing, so i think having things remain reasonably uncertain but it is my intention to -- >> so are you endorsing mr. trump right now? >> i intend to support the republican nominee and certainly support the areas of agreement. >> support but not endorse. what's the difference? >> to me, endorsement is a big embrace. >> seth: that's right an endorsement is a big embrace. [ light laughter ] just like chris christie endorsing his donald trump pillow every night before he goes to bed. [ laughter ] and that's how republicans are behaving in public. behind the scenes, the acrimony over trump is apparently even worse.
like at a retreat held recently by formal gop nominee mitt romney. >> i was just at the romney retreat last weekend, and it felt like a thanksgiving dinner with the most dysfunctional family. they -- you know, you thought you were going to get stabbed with a fork. [ light laughter ] >> seth: stabbed with a fork? what are your thanksgiving dinners like? [ laughter ] now, it's not just republican senators who are looking to get off the trump train. trump has become so toxic that even his best bud russian president vladimir putin tried to distance himself from trump this weekend. trump and putin have both praised each other with putin reportedly calling trump brilliant and talented, but this weekend putin sought to back away from his previous support for trump insisting that he was merely calling trump colorful, quote, trump's a colorful person. and well, isn't he colorful? colorful. [ light laughter ] i didn't make any other kind of characterization about him. you know it's bad when vladimir putin doesn't want you damaging his brand. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] and in fairness, i got to say
putin needs to be safe with his brand because he's making good cash with his putin steaks. they are delicious. [ light laughter ] doesn't taste like any steak i've ever eaten in my life, and oh, it's horse. i've definitely been eating horse. [ laughter ] so in short, republican senators are so worried about trump dragging them down with him in the election this fall. so what can they do? what brilliant republican statesman will snatch these hapless senators away from the grip of toxic don and whisk them away to electoral success? >> george w. bush coming out of retirement to raise money for republican senators worried trump will cost them their seats. >> it's george w. bush to the rescue. can he clean up trump's mess? >> seth: that's right. they're calling in george w. bush to clean up trump's mess. [ laughter ] that's like calling in justin bieber to cover a pitbull song. [ laughter ] and if the george w. bush rescue strategy somehow doesn't work out, republicans have a backup plan. some are quietly floating the idea of trying to lure trump out of the race altogether.
as one former trump adviser told politico last week, quote, i bet if someone offered him $150 million to drop out, he would and another former trump adviser asked whether trump would drop out for that amount of money said, quote, yeah, probably. [ laughter ] i'm guessing yeah, probably is the go-to answer for many former trump advisers. would he nuke north korea if kim jong un made fun of his tiny hands? yeah, probably. [ laughter ] although, as a side note, i would like to remind mr. trump that we here at "late night" can offer you another pass as we're currently offering our own offer to you. that's right if you drop out now, you can have your own 13-episode scripted series on nbc where you play the president of the united states. [ light laughter ] think about it, donald. all the fun of being president with none of the responsibility right here on nbc. [ light cheers ] and because it's on nbc it takes place in chicago and it's called "chicago president." [ laughter ] [ applause ] and that is nbc's generous offer to donald trump that they have not and will not approve.
now as for the $150 million offer, trump responded to the speculation at a rally in phoenix over the weekend. >> one of these groups said today that donald trump -- now, think of this. first of all, it's illegal. second of all, the last thing i would do in the world, donald trump may sell his campaign. may sell it. think of it. may sell it. he wants $150 million. can you believe this? donald trump. number one, you can't do it. number two, you could offer me five times that amount and i wouldn't do it. one of the people was supposedly quoted he might do it for $5 billion. now for five billion i guess we have to think about it, right? [ laughter ] >> seth: okay, let me see if i got this straight. it's a hard no on 150 million. but he'll think about it for five billion. now based on everything i read in the "art of the deal" i'm thinking we can put this thing to bed for 2.2, $2.3 billion. [ laughter ] and i'm being serious. i think we can get mexico to pay
for that. [ cheers and applause ] this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: we'll be right back with more "late night," everybody. [ cheers and applause ] ♪ closing the stage this afternoon for auditions? what's on that piece of paper? oh, miss maroney, your forehead! should not be doing anything. i just had botox. i know exactly what's happening! ah! whoa! this is a bad streaming experience.

[ cheers and applause ] beginning this july, you can catch ray and korn on a co-headlining tour with rob zombie in venues all across the country. thank you so much for being here, ray. >> thanks for having me, seth. [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: we mentioned him earlier, donald trump recently gave a preview of what the general election against hillary clinton may look like, when he tweeted, "amazing that crooked hillary can do a hit on me concerning women, when her husband was the worst abuser of women in u.s. political history." that's another low point of the campaign with the republican front-runner advancing a tired old argument, than many -- >> oh, here we go. >> seth: sorry. what was that? >> what? oh no. it's no big deal. >> seth: okay, i'm sorry, everybody. this is one of our writers matt goldich. what's going on, matt? >> oh, nothing. just another one of your liberal hit pieces on the republicans. >> seth: hit piece? matt, i'm trying to provide a
fair, balanced perspective. >> oh, trying. well, i hear they're giving out trophies for that now. [ light laughter ] political correctness run amok. >> seth: wait. i'm sorry. matt, are you conservative? >> oh, imagine that, a conservative in new york city who is very obviously jewish. [ laughter ] yes, we exist believe it or not. just because we don't show up at your cocktail parties in the village with mike nichols and lou reed. >> seth: well, i'm pretty sure both of those people are dead. [ laughter ] >> well, boo-hoo. yes, seth, i am a conservative. >> seth: well, you know, listen matt, that's great. i mena, i'm all for bringing intelligent conservative voices to the show so people can hear both sides of the issue. >> really? >> seth: really. >> well in that case it's time for the conservative perspective. ♪ ♪ ♪
♪ >> seth: way, way, too long, matt. [ light laughter ] but okay, go ahead. you are a thoughtful, intelligent conservative. what is the thoughtful intelligent reason for conservatives to support donald trump? >> trump? i was hoping you were going to ask me about the importance of limited government. but trump, oh, uh, hm, well, trump. this has been the conservative perspective.

>> seth: not your first talk show. >> nope. >> seth: then i heard, is this true, your first talk show appearance, you're very young. you meet donald trump backstage. >> yes, yeah. >> seth: true story. >> yes, absolutely. it was my first time in new york. i was doing the "today" show. and i was like really nervous and 10 or 11-years-old. and like never been on live tv before. and just terrified. and they said, and he was a guest on it. and presumably someone went up to him, you want to meet the kid who played harry potter. and he was like, yeah. he probably was less enthusiastic than that. [ laughter ] >> seth: i'm the biggest fan of harry potter. >> so, they marched me over to him. and i remember having some idea who he was but not really know full concept. and i said -- i was just like, he's like how are you? i'm really nervous. i don't know what i'm going to talk about on the show. he said, you just tell them you met mr. trump. i was just like to this day, i can't even relate to that level of confidence. but imagine if like -- imagine if i said to billy, just talk about me when you do your interview.
don't worry about it. because i am interesting enough to be everyone's story. yeah. >> seth: especially on a day he just got interviewed and left. and he would come out and say anything interesting? i just met mr. trump. that's how it worked. he was here and you met him. >> and also just like how weirded out would they be. that young british kid loves trump. he's really like into real estate and stuff. i don't know. >> seth: so, this play "privacy." >> yes. >> seth: we were talking about it backstage. it seems like an interesting show. one of the most interesting things is you actually ask audience your members to keep their telephones on. >> yes. throughout the whole show. because there's -- the show is about the nature of privacy and sort of post edward snowden world and what it means to be private. but it's also sort of brings in social media and things like that as well. and we want -- and there's a lot of kind of interactions that go on on stage that we want people to be able to be part of in the audience and kind of like play along. there's a poll at some point.
you can e-mail stuff to us during the show. i don't want to say too much. because it's very -- if we put it off, it will be really cool and unique. but yeah, bring your phone, turn them on. you can keep them charging. it's all good. >> seth: wow, now are you someone that historically enjoys a show that asks for audience participation? >> um, yeah, i mean, to a certain extent. i think it depends like how comfortable i am with the whole thing. i imagine like my parents -- my parents are people that would like shrink away from that. so, unless -- but i promised like, don't worry, i'm not going to be getting them up on stage during the show. it would be awkward. suddenly i'm on stage acting with my parents. this is some kind of bizarre dream. >> seth: yeah, i think in general if i was asked to go on stage in a show, it would be my nightmare. but my whole life, even as a young person if i got brought on stage, i wouldn't want to participate. >> i don't know. yeah, i'm thinking that we'll be -- i think people will be into it. >> seth: well, this doesn't seem -- this seems like more like the technology interaction. >> it's a technology --
exactly, there's a bit of that. >> seth: i'd love to e-mail you during a show. >> yeah, right. >> seth: i mean that's something i've always -- i've seen you in shows before and wished i have been able to e-mail. like hey this -- i know you're busy right now, but this is great. i'm really enjoying this. >> yes, you can totally do that. you can review us midshow. i don't know why i'm encouraging you to do that, but totally you can. >> seth: now i want to talk to about your film. 'cause obviously this seems like an unconventional play you're doing, this film also incredibly unconventional. so, this is "swiss army man." you can tell from -- well, explain it to us a little bit because i feel like the clip. if you don't know what's going on -- >> it's very yeah -- i was watching it back stage going oh, yeah, they're going to go nuts for this out of context. [ light laughter ] but it's basically my very oversimplified pitch is it's just a buddy adventure movie where one of the buddies happens to be dead. i play dead buddy. >> seth: you're the dead buddy. >> and it's a -- you know, it's sort of about paul's character. >> seth: and that's paul dano. >> paul dano. >> seth: a fantastic actor. >> amazing.
he plays hank and i play manny. and he's basically a suicidal man that has to convince a corpse that life is worth living. >> seth: got it. >> but it's like the most anarchic, crazy, i don't know if anyone saw the video "turned down for what," but it's those directors. >> seth: okay, gotcha. >> it's their first feature. >> seth: i remember seeing the "turned down for what" video and thinking i hope they work with daniel at some point. >> well, you know, your dream has come true. >> seth: is it true that when you read the script very early on one of the first few pages said that your character rides a jet ski powered by -- >> i am in fact am the jet ski. so occasionally gas will escape from bodies and dead bodies. at the beginning of this film paul finds my body and like a little bit of gas is escaping from it. and that grows and builds to the point where he rides me across the ocean like a jet ski propelled by my farts.
if you're one of the people laughing right now, go see the movie. if you're sitting there thinking why is he speaking? what is he talking about? maybe not. but like it really is -- i read that scene, and i was immediately like, imagine if like two years from now i'm sitting in a cinema watching paul dano ride someone else across the ocean, i'll be so jealous. and angry. and i just wanted to be a part of that. and the movie is really like -- it is crazy and there's all this stuff that goes on in it. but it actually like is -- the thing i love about it is that it is nuts, but also it's beautiful and has this profundity to it that it shouldn't be able to have. but it sort of holds all these conflicting things in balance perfectly. >> seth: if you can tick both boxes of sort of emotional story and jet ski powered by farts. you are accomplishing a lot. now, i heard you had to get a prosthetic butt for the farting.
>> yeah. >> seth: was this your first prosthetic butt? >> you know what i was asked that earlier at one point and i remember having this moment where i was like, is it? which is just like that gives you some idea, i've had a mental life whether that could conceivably be something that's happened more than once. but yeah, i think it was. and it was -- and it was having a mold done of your ass is exactly what you expect it to be in that there's not a huge amount of dignity in the process. >> seth: how long does it take for the mold to set? like how long are you being prosthetic sized. >> it's probably -- and you're right to ask that question because that's the most awkward part. it's not having the latex poured on to you. it's that 20 minutes. where you're like oh, yeah, i'll just wait in here. but then they said -- like they were asking me about could we do a mold of your butt. yeah, what do you need it for?
like you know? it's the question you got to ask. then they were like. >> seth: i like that somebody gets to that point and not have an answer. oh, what do we need it for? oh, we would like it because we are -- we need it. >> we just need it. don't ask too much. but they said that they were going to put like a motor in it so they could blow air through it for the farting stuff. i'm like yes, i'm in. this needs to happen. and also there's that genuine thing where you don't want them to just guess what your ass looks like and it be a terrible ass. so, you like at least want it to be you. i mean i'm not saying i've got an amazing ass, but at least it's mine. like i'm living a lie by that. >> seth: you want the ass to match the actor. i've said that forever. [ light laughter ] and now this is not because i'm interested in acquiring it, but where is it now? [ laughter ] >> it's a great question. and something i should have looked into more. >> seth: yeah. >> like who has the ass? >> seth: who has it?
>> i would imagine it's with our hair and makeup designer jason hamer who built all the prosthetics and everything for the film and did an amazing job. >> seth: because i will say, i feel like find a charity you care about. there's some super weird rich guy out there who would pay a fortune for that. like in his weird mansion like have parties where he goes, you know who that is. [ laughter ] that's radcliffe's butt with a motor. >> i want like -- is that a window into what you would be like if you had -- >> seth: if i had just a little bit more money, that's my life. good-bye, wife, good-bye baby, i'm buying famous butts. >> i'll find out. >> seth: okay, good, thank you. and then again, i'm not interested, but text me immediately. thank you so much for being here. always a pleasure to see you. >> thank you. thank you for having me. >> seth: daniel radcliffe, everybody "swiss arm man" is in select theaters june 24th and opens nationwide on july 1st. we'll be right back with billy eichner.

[ laughter ] those were the days. you know, we didn't know how good we had it. but lin, lin is a genius and we were thrilled. he actually came to film with us at like 6:00am the morning after he performed live on the grammys. >> seth: unbelievable. >> so what -- you know, what won't he do -- >> seth: yeah.
>> to be on camera? let's be honest. >> seth: well you've -- [ laughter ] you have many accomplishments as well. and i was very happy to hear this. you were a -- i guess you were an answer on "jeopardy." >> yes. yes. they did a question about "billy on the street." >> seth: yeah, and now what -- how -- what was the dollar value, do you remember? >> i don't remember how much money was attached to it. >> seth: how -- when you saw it, what was your takeaway? >> here was the -- they did a question about "billy on the street" and literally none of the contestants knew who i was. >> seth: okay. [ laughter ] >> so i'm -- >> set: were they old people? >> no. it was college "jeopardy." [ laughter ] people who are hip, who know pop culture. who are suppose to know about -- >> seth: but were they close? did you -- did you see that moment of them being on the tip of their tongue? >> nope. literally -- [ laughter ] i'm responsible for something you never see on tv anymore. seven seconds of complete and utter silence. [ laughter ] >> seth: we have a clip. >> yes, let's look at it. >> seth: all right. >> games of this comic on the street included, would drew barrymore like that?
and it's spock, do you care? [ buzzer ] billy eichner. sara, back to you. [ laughter ] >> seth: settle down. >> silence. >> seth: nothing. >> complete silence. >> seth: nobody even did this almost buzzer. >> nothing. no one even thought i was like chris hardwick or something. i mean nothing. >> seth: i think looking you were 600. so there were two harder questions than that. >> what could be harder? [ laughter ] literally no -- no one knew who i was. >> seth: now you -- >> but by the way, it's still an honor to be a "jeopardy" question. >> seth: absolutely. that's an accomplishment. you should take that. >> thank you. >> seth: don't let three dummies ruin it for you. >> i'm gonna -- i want applause. so i'm just gonna say lin-manuel miranda. >> seth: there you go. [ cheers and applause ] >> yes. thank you. thank you so much. thank you so much. he's so great. >> seth: so, "billy on the --" >> he's so great. [ laughter ] >> seth: i want to -- i feel like "billy on the street" gets a ton of credit. rightly deserved. but i think a lot people who maybe only see clips -- only know about you running around the streets. and my favorite thing, you do so many high production value sketches now.
>> yeah, we do now. yeah. >> seth: that are -- i mean i -- they're beyond what i would think you would have the budget for. and i want to talk about your thanksgiving day parade you did with katie couric. >> yes. >> seth: so -- >> this was one of my favorite segments we've ever done. >> seth: it's brilliant. so talk about how it came to be. >> thank you. i was obsessed with the macy's thanksgiving day parade when i was a kid. i would watch every year, which katie couric was hosting and they would have these big floats and these huge balloons and performances from broadway shows and all these people. it was like a really iconic new york event. so i want to do my own version now as an adult. but i want balloons and floats that reflect what i'm interested in now. >> seth: okay. >> and so we have like -- we did a huge balloon, like a 26-foot tall balloon we had made of rooney mara. [ laughter ] and of mila kunis. we did something called the mark ruffaloat. which was a float -- a float dedicated to the work of mark ruffalo. [ laughter ] obviously. >> seth: where did you have the balloons made? >> we had the balloons made in hong kong. >> seth: goodness.
>> where i think they actually make the macy's day balloons. >> seth: i'd believe that. >> we didn't use special effects. we created everything from scratch. and katie couric co-hosted it with me. >> seth: so you reached out to katie couric and just explained it as you explained it here and she said yes. >> yes. she liked "billy on the street." and she was very game and very charming and she said she hosted the real parade for 12 years. and so there was no one better to do it. and it was so strange for her. >> seth: and we have a clip. and she was fantastic. >> yes she is. >> seth: and you were fantastic, too. let's take a look at a clip. >> now here it is. >> i'm excited. >> nothing signals the arrival of the holiday season like a balloon of maggie gyllenhaal. >> yep, you're gonna want to make sure your kids are in the room for this because maggie gyllenhaal is coming to town. [ laughter ] and of course many of you out there know maggie's brother jake gyllenhaal who once [ bleep ] my friend liz. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: fantastic. congratulations on both your shows. >> thank you. >> seth: and everything else. it's always such a pleasure to see you. give it up for billy eichner everybody. >> i love you. >> seth: i love you too buddy.
